Brittany Olinkiewicz, Social Media Manager
Brittany was born and raised on Shelter Island, locked in by the sea. But she was never "sheltered" for too long, starting her travels after high school, living in Hawaii and then Madrid. She has traveled throughout Europe and expanding to other countries this coming year. A lover of different foods and cultures, Brittany can't stay in one place for too long. And her passion for art and photography is a helpful tool in the social media game.
